All Clara wants is a key - a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer's annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key-which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world.
It's there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara's key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is one of the best live-action Disney films. It contains all the magic and the score by James Newton Howard perfectly contains the beloved suits from "The Nutcracker" by Tchaikovsky, while also being new. Keira Knightley is perfect as the Sugar Plum Fairy. Great family film!
